Despite its status as one of the most peaceful countries in the world, Canada still has its share of abhorrent criminal offenses. Very few criminals escape prosecution, but those who do become the subject of intense police investigations.

So that the public may submit information on outstanding cases, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) publishes the details of wanted individuals on its website.

Compiled below are the 20 individuals featured on the "Wanted" bulletin. Some of these people are consistently featured on the public list. Others are new additions. Remember that this list is subject to change.

Listed below each photo are offenders' names and details about their alleged crimes.

To ensure accuracy, all information is quoted directly from the RCMP website.

The RCMP warns, however, that Canadians should "take no action to apprehend these people. Report any information to the nearest RCMP detachment or the police in your area or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477."
